Study Wind Energy Online

WES.online is a full master program designed for natural scientists and engineers who want to learn about the mechanical and electronic operation and interaction of wind turbines. The program was also created for specialists and managers who want to develop or improve the design or individual components of a wind turbine at a wind turbine manufacturer or supplier company. At the end of your studies, you will receive a German degree – a country recognized worldwide for it´s knowledge in wind energy and it´s ambition in driving the development of wind energy forward.

Full Flexibility

WES.online enables you to educate yourself besides your full-time job – anytime and everywhere in the world. All courses are taught 100% in English language and online in virtual classrooms. You can choose to attend the lecture live or access the recording at a later point.  There is no need to visit us for taking an exam, as they take place online as well. Furthermore, you have the flexibility to apply for as many or few courses per semester as you like or even take a semester off whenever you need it.

Small Classes

We have small classes (few students per lecturer), meaning you have the opportunity to talk directly to the teacher and ask your question anytime – during the lecture or at another time via message.

Learn from Experts

The entire 120 credit master program is taught by lecturers who are:

  • Experts in wind power settled at the University of Kassel, one of Germany´s leading universities in the field of sustainability.
  • Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Economics and Energy System Technology (IEE) - a division of Europe´s leading research institute Fraunhofer.
  • Experts working in the wind industry.

WES.online Certificates

In addition to our master program, we offer several certificates that allow you to specialize in different aspects of wind energy.
All certificates consist of five carefully selected modules from the master program. As a certificate student you will study together with the master students and you can change to the master program in October of any year – either in the midst or the end of your certificate studies.
